The PERFECT Mother’s Day Pancakes
- 200g (about 1 large) banana, peeled
- 100g quinoa flakes
- 1 cup (250ml) any milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp maple syrup, plus extra to serve
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- Greek yoghurt, mixed berries & crushed pistachios, to serve
Place banana, quinoa flakes, milk, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder and maple syrup in a blender or food processor and whiz for 30 seconds or until well combined (alternatively, mash the banana with a fork and mix in a jug with the pancake ingredients).
Melt a little of the coconut oil in a large non-stick frypan over high heat.
Spoon 1/4 cup (60ml) batter into pan and use the back of a spoon to swirl into a rough circle, about 1cm thick and 8cm wide. Repeat to make another 2-3 pancakes, depending on the size of your pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook pancakes for 11/2 minutes or until set. When they start to bubble, flip each pancake over and cook for 1 minute or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and repeat with the rest of the batter, using a little more coconut oil each time.
Place the cooked pancakes in the oven on a low temperature to keep warm while you make the rest.
Divide pancakes among serving plates and top with a spoonful of yoghurt, mixed berries and pistachios. Drizzle with extra maple syrup to serve.
Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at The Interior Designer x
